I love a list

I love a list.
I've got them everywhere.
I make lists every day.
I make them about everything.
Work lists, job lists for home, shopping lists, gift lists ...
It helps me feel organised in my busy, busy day.
Sometimes I even get things done on my list.
What that happens, it's a happy day indeed.
I love ticking things off my list.
It makes me feel better if I tick things off AND cross things out on my list.

When we were on the houseboat and James and I had the time and energy to have a conversation, we started making lists - people we want to catch up with, things to do on the house, family plans ....
It was nice to have the time to look ahead.
It was lovely to have time to talk.

Then I read that Tinnie Girl had put her own list together and it got me thinking about a list of things for me ... just for me ...
So I dived right in and created a list for me.

In no particular order:

  • I want to do more baking and bottling
  • Reconnect with my friends
  • Organise a weekend away
  • Worry less
  • Get back into walking
  • Lose those pesky kilos I put on last year
  • Feel less rushed
  • Plan a holiday
  • Buy a better camera
  • Take some sewing classes
  • Make stuff
  • Finish my awesome granny stripe rug
  • Get my back, neck and shoulder attended to
  • Feel less rushed
  • Leave the office at a reasonable hour
  • Do my tax
  • Be a good mother
  • Be a good wife
  • Be a good sister
  • Be a good daughter
  • Be a good daughter in law
  • Be a good sister in law
  • Have fun
  • Feel grateful about life
  • Plan a dinnerparty with friends
  • Find a cleaner
  • Breathe
  • See more of our neighbours Pina and Alfredo
  • Cook that saddle of venison in the freezer
  • Listen more
  • Judge less
  • Do some guerilla knitting and install it in my local park
  • Create my own calendar for 2012
  • Book a massage, book several
  • Take a chance
  • Organise the studio
  • Do more sewing
  • Finish projects
  • Start new ones
  • Take a moment
  • Feel less rushed
How's that for starters ...?

P.S. I should probably drink more water too : )
